All the seafood is fresh and delicious! The cheeseburger is a great option if you don't like seafood. The waitresses are very efficient, attentive, professional and friendly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will visit again in the future. Great job Bubba's Seafood! 😊

Bubba's is not fancy, but if you want to eat fresh seafood on the water, there is no better place. Dimitri, the owner, is almost always on site going from table to table greeting familiar faces and making new friends.

Oh my! The portions are super huge!! I had the salmon. There was enough for two meals. Others had the crab cakes & there was enough for two. The she crab soup was good. I'd give it 7 out of 10.
